Our organizations have met with Facebook several times, we have flagged content through emails, and we have publicly shared our concerns with Facebook about the rampant spread of U.S. Spanish-language disinformation and hateful activities on the platform.

Our hope is that this verdict will be a small step towards accountability. But that’s just about accountability, not justice.
For us, justice would be George Floyd alive today.
